SZA uses these 7 products for her natural makeup look
When it comes to natural beauty, SZA could teach a master class.
On VMA night, her makeup artist wanted to put together a subtle but glam no-makeup makeup look.
“SZA’s makeup inspiration is a play on her current look — her makeup needed to feel subtle and fresh to go with her vintage Chanel outfit,” Samuel Paul told Galore about her all Urban Decay look. “The look consisted of rosy cheeks and glitter liner above her usual black eyeliner, to give it a fun, younger appeal.”
